Deputy Mayor welcomes drug seizure

Deputy Lord Mayor Cllr Aodhan O Riordain has welcomed the major drugs seizure in the capital on Tuesday night. Up to six million euro worth of heroin has been discovered in an apartment in West Dublin.

Cllr Aodhan O Riordain has congratulated Gardai for their role in one of the biggest single seizures they have made in recent years. 'It is great to hear that such a substantial amount of heroin has been recovered however it is a matter of extreme concern that heroin is still in such high demand in Dublin.' Cllr O Riordain said.

'The Gardai are to be congratulated and I would once again urge people within the community to pass whatever information they have onto the Gardai so that more seizures like this can be made in the future' Cllr O Riordain concluded.
